Beads beads and more beads!
I have been busy with glazing and trying to make new work pieces and jewelry in preparation for a show. All this while I have a ton of things to do around and out of the house. Plus taking care of my dog who the last couple months has been showing her age. New things keep coming up with her symptoms, so trips to the vet have been often. Her most recent and scary situation this week is that she has no control of her rear legs, she has little balance and walks like she is drunk. The xrays showed she has the lower part of her vertebrae fused on three places. So I am keeping an eye on her, she is on meds to help with inflammation, pain etc. But if things don't get better, sadly I will have to make the decision
to have her put down. In all other aspects she is doing great, she has an appetite, looks happy, wants to go on walks (but can't) and seems to be okay which makes the decision hard.
In the meantime here are some beads from the last firing, I hope to add more. Hopefully I will have time to add some to my etsy store in the next couple days.
I will keep you posted on Sparky, hoping that she pulls through and is able to give me a couple more years of her companionship, love and reason to get out there with her.
